Won't be driven out by auto attack: Rahul Gandhi

BJP using central agencies to win one Rajya Sabha seat Ahmed Patel to WION

"This is the style of politics of Modi, BJP and the RSS", Rahul said outside Parliament House.

Elections are due in December in Gujarat, which Mr. Modi is originating, and the party of the Prime minister hoped to keep the power.

The person accused is said to be an office bearer of BJP's local youth outfit in the area and several of his pictures with senior BJP leaders too started doing rounds on some social media platforms.

The former Union Minister said the Congress or its leaders will not be cowed by stone-pelters or those waving black flags in the fight to help those affected by floods in Gujarat.

The Congress also lodged a police complaint of "murderous assault" against four BJP workers.

Stone-throwing acquired a new dimension on Friday as Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's convoy was hit by a cement brick, while he was touring the flood-devastated Banaskantha district of Gujarat.

Earlier, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala informed that BJP goons broke Congress VP's vehicle with heavy stones on his way to the helipad after meeting flood victims at Dhanera. Gandhi's auto was pelted with stones on Friday when he had visited Dhanera town to meet victims of the floods. "The BJP government must be held responsible for the attacks" he added.

"In yesterday's incident, BJP workers threw a stone at me which hit my personal security officer (PSO)". This is how they and Modi conduct politics. Rahul Gandhi is going to travel to Gujarat quite frequently in the next few months.

Earlier, Gandhi had declared that he will not be deterred by the incident.

Rahul's auto was attacked on Friday when he was on his way to the helipad after visiting the flood-hit areas in Gujarat. Senior Congress leader and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad also condemned the attack on Gandhi, saying that it was a "pre-planned conspiracy".

Reacting to the attack, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi asked, "Are we reaching a space in our democracy where political opponents are not going to be allowed to practice democratic politics?" "We will put in all our might into the service of people", he tweeted Friday.
